We're a little late on the uptake here so forgive our tardiness, but somehow we managed to miss Mick McCarthy giving one of the finest press conferences of his career after Ipswich's 2-1 win over Burton Albion at the weekend.

The crux of McCarthy's griping was Bersant Celina, the 21-year-old winger on loan from Man City, who emerged off the bench to score a last-minute winner for the Tractor Boys.

The bookies' odds for Saturday's game against Ipswich are closing in. For a time Ipswich were favourites but we're getting to the point where it's almost too close to call.

I'm not sure what the odds should be. Nobody knows what Fulham 2014/15 will be, but we know that Ipswich, managed by the authoritative Mick McCarthy are a more than decent side.
